Flags!

Seems there's a fancy new part coming out soon. 1x2 place with hollow studs and rounded corners. Along with all the other neat things it could be used for, one thing I want to see it used for is some kind of flag or banner material. From what little I know of the techniques, most "curve" builds use a mix of 1x3 plates and 1x1 round plates or some staggered arrangement of 1x2s and 1x1 rounds. But the new piece looks like it could maybe provide a much simpler, better-looking, and more stable way of doing that. I'm sure it'll be good for other compact curve uses too, like cylindrical shapes.

 

Just want to get this thought out there.

Judging by it's placement in the set picture, it looks like some addition to a minifig, which may mean it only shows up one to a set, making it expensive to get a large quantity of them. (On the other hand, it will probably show up in other sets as part of the build, AKA in higher quantities.)

The helicopter set uses one on its nose in addition to the minifigure one, so there's a chance it'll find more widespread use.  And there's always things like LUGBULK.
